Subject: Jer is ON IT
whatever IT may be this night.
Eyes> Stella> Franklin's definitely does it for me.
Jer won't let them go into Drums; a beautiful jam there into Stella. which is a rager
his voice is about to collapse by Franklin's, but his guitar speaks volumes.

Subject: a little less zeal, a little less squeel--More DEAD!
1st set -good, some funny banter between songs.
Phil sounding great on Lazy Lightning.
2nd set -Bertha>Good Lovin- extra effort on GOOD LOVIN'-crowd cheers-Phil says thanks!
EYES-nice / 13 minutes in almost Drumz territory and Jerry noodling SPACE before Stella Blue! (Eyes>Stella>Franklin's from Garcia)
Franklin's is super laid back. (lot o Phil)
Donna? not much except Franklin's > Around
Good to read previous REVIEWS.

Subject: early 78 had some moments
Unfortunately, Keith's playing was becoming very percussive. Something a band with 2 drummers did not need. And yes, setlists were becoming very predictable. But, Jerry was playing at a level that transcended Keith's growing drug addiction and declining playing. Still, 78 was the year I really spread my wings a and sacrificed the GPA to see shows in what for me were distant cities. And this show was a favorite at the time.

Stella Blue--->Franklins Tower? Yep this Stella is a keeper. Franklins good too but what a Stella Blue.

Subject: I was at this show...
I just walked in the service door about 11 AM with my girlfriend and Phil behind me, got passes from Jerry an hour later and stayed for the entire show. It was amazing. At the time I thought it was so good because I was on stage behind some crates. After the show while sipping on a glass of red wine, Bobby said he didn't think it was too good and asked me to come back the next night. (It was a three day show... small theater). However, listening to this, I see it was as good as I thought...a musical gem, a calm before the coming storm.

Subject: clean as whistle 78...
Special notice and recognition go out to Charlie Miller and co.. for giving us this super cleaned up 78 sbd.. Early 78 the band still had a good deal of positive energy coming out.The set list were getting fairly predectable by this point.This show is a great example of how precise they could play. Real nice job with the vocals, and a nice balance in the mix by the band.. sweet versions of l.l.rain and lightnen,, solid 78 second set.. eyes, stella show jerry was very much into it this night in a small theatre in Chi town,a very listenable show, for anewbie to turn on to..

Subject: Great..but
Great show but for that awful banging sound that Keith's keyboard makes. Ruins an otherwise transcendant Stella solo. Keith also has tendency to duplicate Jerry's melody lines. Very annoying.

Subject: Wow
That's one stunning Stella, among many other gems from this show ... great inventiveness, great precision.

Killer show. Killer C Miller remaster.
Reviewer: Folkhippy - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - July 25, 2009
Subject: Thank you Charlie Miller
Killer show from January '78. The Dead were still riding out their '77 energy wave at the beginning of the new year. Great jams and performance! Charlie Miller and Co. really did another great job with the remastering or whatever it is he does to bring the best sound possible out of a SBD! One of my favorite jams from the late seventies is Lazy Lightning>Supplication and this version rocks! Check it out!
